Types of Peer Tutoring
Appointment-Based Tutoring (Online & On-Campus)
Appointment-based tutoring is a one-on-one scheduled session focused on your questions. Tutors can help you understand your course materials, prepare for exams, help with learning strategies, and answer your questions.
Drop-In Tutoring (On-Campus)
Drop-in tutoring does not require an appointment and is in a casual setting that also allows for independent studying. Tutors are available to help you understand your course materials, prepare for exams, help with learning strategies, and answer your questions.
Tutor Led Exam Review Sessions
Experienced tutors lead exam review sessions throughout the semester for various on-campus courses.
Online Tutoring via Smarthinking
Students are given 5 hours of tutoring per academic year in Smarthinking.
What to Expect from Your Tutor
Peer tutors will guide you in:
- increasing comprehension
